on a dime and now we're moving into a completely different environment. it's not an environment so different that all of these things are going to happen. and an assault weapons ban is sill a heavy lift. remember, the assault weapons ban we had had a lot of loopholes in it. but the other elements, it's just a different world. and i think national rifle association is no longer supreme in the same way and many of their own members i think are going to start to feel differently. when you get a joe manchin of west virginia coming out and saying "i hunt, i don't need more than three bullets in a magazine" and you get other long-standing strong proponents of the second amendment saying it's time for some changes, we're moving into a different world. >> brown: david kopel, do you think the politics have changed here or do you expect -- well, there certainly will be challenges legislatively. will there also be challenges legally? >> there will certainly be legal challenges because one important thing -- the way things have changechanged is we now have the supreme court having affirmed that the seco
has to take the lead on is the environment and catastrophic climate change. if we don't deal with that issue, who knows what the fate of the earth is going to be. who cares whether the rich pay 36% or 39%. that's not going to change the course of the country unless you have comprehensive tax reform that dealt with the fact that we are becoming a nation of inequals. like on the eve of the great depression. >> certainly i would agree with that. i would also disagree with part of it, because it has been shown that enough people do care about that wealth and equality because he did win as a not terribly popular president in a reelection. but one of the other things is the who issue of guns. i don't remember and i don't have the breadth of knowledge that you do but i don't seem to remember a -- an issue like what he is having to do now or has chosen to do now with guns being sort of gifted to him -- or to a president at the beginning of a second term. that gives him a bit of momentum that i don't remember -- momentum going into the second term that few presiden
that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the president's agenda. in a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, more than half, 56%, say laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. so what realistically can the president do? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones," joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com, and both are msnbc political analysts. joy, how large should he be looking? >> i think the president needs to go in with a large package obviously, but when you talk to individual lawmakers, particularly on the house side, you get the sense two things have to happen. first of all, something has to pass the senate. that theoretically could be large, but the house is going to be a much tougher sled, although i was speaking with a couple lawmakers yesterday who seemed to think parts of what the president wants could actually pass in the house. things that are pretty much noncontroversial, things like universal background check
've reported on this at capitol file magazine. great for people who love the environment, celebrating the efforts of the people in the last four years in the energy and environmental sector. that's supposed to be a great party, too. >> something for everybody? >> something for everybody. >> what we want to know, also, besides that great information, the celebrities coming in town. we don't really get it that often. it's new york, l.a. what about us? it's our turn. >> we're getting celebrities. we do get a few with some of the movie premiers. "argo" recently. beyonce, she'll be here. people are really excited about that. she's set to do the national anthem at the inauguration. lots of people will be tuning in. katy perry is in town. the cast of "glee" for all the people who watch that show. kelly clarkson will perform. the list goes on. eva longoria will be here as well. >> showing james taylor, too. taking us back, like we saw aretha franklin perform that famous hat that's now on display at the museum somewhere, so star power is the same, it's just maybe a little bit smaller as far as
